Fantastic to see Northern Ireland skipper Steven Davis named in Uefa's European Qualifiers All Star XI this week. He deserved it.

The side was: Thibaut Courtois (Belgium), Matteo Darmian (Italy), Ashley Williams (Wales), Gary Cahill (England), Razvan Rat (Romania), Gylfi Sigurdsson (Iceland), Davis (Northern Ireland), David Alaba (Austria), Thomas Muller (Germany), Robert Lewandowski (Poland), Gareth Bale (Wales).

Muller is magnificent, but surely our own Kyle Lafferty did more to inspire his country in the qualifying campaign and Cahill over Gareth McAuley? You have got to be kidding me!
